Microsoft’s Surface Hub is a touchscreen computer with a big display and an emphasis on use in professional settings. Microsoft started taking pre-orders for the Surface Hub in July and promised that it would ship in September.

Now the company says the Surface Hub won’t actually ship until January 1st, 2016.

The Surface Hub runs Windows 10 software, features support for finger or pen input, and includes customized versions of Microsoft’s Office and Skype apps for business presentations, collaboration sessions, and more.

The systems feature cameras, an array of four microphones, and you can use up to three digital pens with a Surface Hub at once.

Microsoft includes two digital pens and a wireless keyboard with each Surface Hub, and there will be two models of the big-screen computer at launch: A 55 inch model with an Intel Core i5 processor and a $6,999 price tag and a $19,999 model with an 84 inch display and Core i7 processor.

As much as these systems look like big-screen displays, they’re clearly not designed for use as home media centers.

  1. I am installing Ubuntu 14.04 LTS on my Dell Mini 9, replacing 10.04 LTS that I installed years ago, and during this trip down memory lane I happened to read this article. 55″ and 84″ “tablets” being covered on a site that got started with the 7″ Eee PC netbook in 2007… You’ve come a long way, Brad-san!
